Temperature Limit

IntroductionSelection Guide Engineering DataBrochure

Normal operating temperatures should be kept below 300°F for standard FIBERGLIDE® bearings. An increase in wear rates may be experienced at temperatures above 350°F. Note that at elevated operating temperatures, the PV limit will be decreased in order to prevent the surface temperature from exceeding 300°F, (environmental temperature plus friction heat generated). When temperatures exceed 300°F or fall below -200°F, consult Transport Dynamics Engineering Department for specific recommendations.
